We could never learn to be brave and patient, if there were only joy in the world. ~Helen Keller

Joyful Sorrow

I see many emotions in this painting. Joy and Sorrow and everything in between. The range of emotion is played out in the colors and the shapes. I see sad faces and happy faces. I really enjoy the way that the colored emotions are strong in some places and weaker in others. Just as in life, things play out the way that they are meant to and we are along for the ride.

My take on life at this point is that you do your best, try to stay positive, and realize that not everything happens the way that I think it should. There are many mysteries yet to be unveiled and many paths not yet taken. Finding joy in the many small places each day is a constant challenge and reward at the same time.
